Number of Leonardo da Vinci drawings owned by the British Royal family:

300 (at least)

(I say "at least" because this is the number at Winsor Castle. They may own more elsewhere.)

Of course the Queen also owns a Vermeer.

(Source: Art History blog - really worth the read for a in depth post on an exhibition of Leonardo drawings in Cardiff. I especially liked the drawing of the hands - click on the pictures for nice large images!)
